49ers' Ezekiel Ansah: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (biceps) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Nick Wagoner of reports.

The 31-year-old was confirmed to have suffered a torn biceps earlier in the week, so it's no surprise he was placed on injured reserve. Ansah is eligible to rejoin the active roster after missing three games, but he'll likely be sidelined for the rest of the season.

49ers' Ezekiel Ansah: Biceps tear confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah has officially been diagnosed with a biceps tear, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

This injury will presumably end Ansah's 2020 season. The 49ers are already struggling with depth on the edge, as Nick Bosa (knee) is out for the season and Dee Ford (neck) is on IR.

49ers' Ezekiel Ansah: Biceps tear feared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

There are fears that Ansah (arm) suffered a season-ending biceps tear in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Ansah will go for an MRI to confirm the diagnosis, so expect clarification on his injury to come Monday. San Francisco's already shorthanded on the edge with Nick Bosa (knee) done for the season and Dee Ford (neck) on IR.

49ers' Ezekiel Ansah: Ruled out with arm injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (arm) has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Ansah joins a long list of 49ers injuries on both sides of the ball. He'll hope to heal up in time to play against the Dolphins in Week 5.

49ers' Ezekiel Ansah: Officially joins 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers signed Ansah to a one-year contract on Wednesday.

Ansah joins a San Francisco defensive line that just lost two high-end starters for the season, with Nick Bosa (knee) and Solomon Thomas (knee) both having been placed on IR. The 31-year-old will likely begin his career with the 49ers as a rotational defensive end, but it wouldn't be out of the question for him to earn something more resembling a starting workload as the season progresses.

49ers' Ezekiel Ansah: Will sign with 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah will sign with the 49ers this week, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

This deal is all but finalized, as Ansah just needs to pass the COVID-19 protocols to officially sign with the team. Ansah worked out with the 49ers twice over the last two months, and now the team desperately needs depth at DE following news that Nick Bosa likely tore his ACL and is done for the year. Ansah likely won't be a starter right away after recording just 2.5 sacks over 11 games with the Seahawks last year, but he's in line for a decent workload nonetheless.

Ezekiel Ansah: On Ravens' radar
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah is on the Ravens' radar, Joe Schiller of the team's official site reports.

The Ravens could be contemplating bringing the veteran pass rusher in for a workout after he visited with the club last April, but he ultimately decided to sign a one-year deal in Seattle. Although Ansah has massive potential, injuries have held him back in recent seasons, as he has missed 19 games over the past four campaigns. However, if healthy, there's no question Ansah could make a difference on the Ravens' defensive line.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Injury-riddled 2019 campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (neck) finished 2019 with 19 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two pass breakups and two forced fumbles over 11 regular-season games.

Ansah missed the first two games while recovering from offseason surgery to repair a torn labrum, another game with an ankle injury, and three contests -- including the divisional-round loss to the Packers -- due to a neck injury. The defensive end is still dealing with the neck concern, but it shouldn't be an issue by the time he becomes a free agent in March. Ansah made $9 million in 2019, so it's unlikely he'll be back with the Seahawks on a similar number in 2020. He turns 31 years old in May.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: No-go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (neck) won't play in Sunday's NFC Divisional matchup against Green Bay.

Ansah failed to suit up in the final two practices of the week, signalling that this news isn't quite surprising. Now that the veteran is officially out, he'll be a huge loss to the defense, and Rasheem Green is expected to replace Ansah in the lineup.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Deemed questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks have listed Ansah (neck) as questionable ahead of Sunday's game versus the Packers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Ansah has now sat out back-to-back practices after being limited on Wednesday, so he is not trending in the right direction. Still, it could just be a case of Seattle exercising caution with their starting defensive end. Rasheem Green would presumably be in line to replace Ansah should he end up being unable to go.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Held out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (neck) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Ansah is trending down and will likely need to log some sort of practice activity Friday in order to have a chance to suit up for Sunday's divisional-round contest against the Packers. If Ansah does not play, Rasheem Green is in line to play a larger role along the Seahawks' defensive line.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Held back during practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (neck) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Ansah exited the wild-card win against the Eagles after just 12 snaps due to a stinger, and his status for this Sunday's game versus the Packers is still uncertain. The 30-year-old has two more practices to get back to full speed. If he can gear up Sunday, he'll provide a solid pass rush opposite of Jadeveon Clowney.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Dealing with stinger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah's neck injury from Sunday's win over the Eagles was clarified as a stinger postgame, and coach Pete Carroll said the team still needs to see regarding the injury's severity, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

Stingers usually don't take too long to heal, so Ansah should be considered on the right side of questionable for the divisional-round matchup against the Packers. His ability, or lack thereof, to participate in practice during the week will help clarify his status.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Injures neck in wild-card game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah was forced out of Sunday's wild-card playoff game versus Philadelphia due to a neck injury, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Ansah missed two games in December due to a neck injury, so this may be related. Seahawks pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney is already playing through a core injury, so the Seahawks' depth on the edge is worrisome. Rasheem Green and Branden Jackson will fill Ansah's role for the time being.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Back from neck injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (neck) was a full practice participant Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Ansah missed the last two games due to the neck issue but is on track to return for Week 16. The 30-year-old has been limited to nine games this season and has 15 tackles (11 solo), 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Ruled out vs. Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (neck) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Ansah will miss his second straight game and his fifth of the season. Jadeveon Clowney (groin/illness) is also ruled out, so Rasheem Green, Branden Jackson and Quinton Jefferson will rotate in at defensive end.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Will be game-time decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Brady Henderson of reports.

Ansah put in two limited practices to start the week. Speaking on the radio, coach Pete Carroll called him a game-time decision, according to Henderson. Branden Jackson and Rasheem Green each saw increased snaps Week 14 with Ansah out and would likely replace him again.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Won't suit up against Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (neck) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Rams.

Ansah was only a limited participant this week, and he'll miss his fourth game of the season. The 30-year-old has been a regular on the injury report this season, and he'll look to get back on the field in Week 15 against the Panthers. Rasheem Green figures to start at defensive end in Ansah's stead.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Status questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (neck) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Ansah received credit for two limited practices this week in what were actually just walk-throughs for Seattle. The 30-year-old has missed three games while dealing with several different injuries this season but has played in five straight games.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Limited by neck injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to a neck injury, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Neck injuries can be a worrying development, but the fact Ansah still practiced in some capacity indicates it isn't a serious concern. The 30-year-old may still need to practice fully at some point this week to avoid an injury designation.
